How to Seal a Stainless Steel Pot


Stainless steel pots are susceptible to rust, hard water damage and oxidation. Protect your pots before their first use by seasoning them with oil, creating a protective barrier and filling in any imperfections to reduce sticking and baked-on food. Soaps eliminate the oil layer created by seasoning, so you should repeat the process any time you wash your pots with soap.

Things You'll Need

  • Clean towel
  • Vegetable oil
  • Paper towel
  • Wash your stainless steel pot in mild dish detergent and hot water. Dry the pot completely with a clean towel.

  • Spread a layer of vegetable oil throughout the inside of the pan, up to the rim.

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Place the pan in the oven for one hour. Turn off the oven and set the pan out to cool.

  • Wipe the inside of the pan out with a paper towel to remove the excess oil.

  • Repeat the process any time you wash your pan with soap or wash it in the dishwasher.
